Partner City: Melbourne
3 days of inspiration
DesignInspire annually partners with Business of Design Week and a world’s creative economy to present a comprehensive programme of thematic exhibition, conferences, forums, networking activities and fringe events. Melbourne is the partner city of DesignInspire 2018.

Melbourne’s significant strengths in design come to life in Hong Kong under the theme “Think · Collaborate · Create”.

Melbourne’s approach to design is thoughtful and strategic; driven to form mutually beneficial partnerships and deep connections; working collaboratively towards solutions, innovations and designs that inspire and create impact.

Melbourne has been rated the world’s most liveable city for seven years’ running by The Economist Intelligence Unit. Design is key to the city’s liveability – from its plethora of parks, gardens and bike transport infrastructure to its unique tram network; from the grid design of Melbourne’s central business district and human-scale laneways to its superior sports infrastructure. Good design is a part of the city’s DNA.

A centre for creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship, Melbourne boasts a strong design capability. Along with its quality of life, commitment to education, and reputation for scientific and medical research, Melbourne has an international profile as a cultural and events city, including large-scale public art, design and architectural projects.

Melbourne brand identity

The Melbourne partner city identity takes its inspiration from the thinking, planning and design that underpins the structure of Melbourne’s central business district, a grid network of streets and laneways. The identity is a graphic representation of Melbourne in a nine-square grid.

The ancient Chinese ‘Bi’ circle has also been centrally integrated into the Melbourne branding to represent the importance of Melbourne’s collaborative relationship and willingness to partner with China and with other Asian cultures.

Similarly, the brand uses colours with cultural resonance in Asia – red for good luck and happiness, jade for calm and wisdom, and purple for divinity and immortality.

The Melbourne pavilion is organised by:

Transurban with ARQ Group and Bluedot Innovation

LinktGO is a world-first service design innovation that revolutionises how customers pay for tolls by replacing a physical transponder with an app. A wholly digital experience, LinktGO uses a smartphone to create a real-time tolling experience.

50% of Australian toll road drivers are infrequent users. Research showed these casual customers were looking for easier, more immediate and more transparent options to pay for toll roads without committing to an account.

Leveraging a smartphone’s GPS, and coupling it with geo-fencing technology, the designers virtualised physical tolling infrastructure to develop the world’s first tolling app. Providing full transparency of trip details and costs, LinktGO allows drivers to pay tripby-trip with their phones – no need to use a physical transponder, sticker tag, search for exact change, or sign up to an ongoing commitment.

Company Profile:

Baracco+Wright Architects in collaboration with Linda Tegg. Australian Pavilion, 16th International Architecture Exhibition, La Biennale di Venezia. Presented by the Australian Institute of Architects.

Architecture has customarily taken up land and impacted the natural environment. In response to this, Repair advocated for an approach to architecture that catalyses environmental, social or cultural repair. This approach is particularly relevant for Australian architects who work in one of the most biodiverse and ecologically sensitive landscapes in the world.
Repair incorporated three collaborative works: Grasslands Repair, a living installation of more than sixty species of grassland plants from south east Victoria that once grew on the site of Melbourne; Skylight, a life-sustaining light installation that provided the necessary light spectrum to the plants, something usually denied by the fabric of a building; and Ground, a video program featuring Australian architectural projects that engage with ideas of repair.

Blamey Saunders hears

Company Profile:

Facett is the world’s first modular userprogrammable hearing aid. It was designed by Leah Heiss for Blamey Saunders hears, an Australian company reducing barriers to hearing aid uptake through innovative design. Facett functions differently from traditional hearing aids. The device’s intuitive magnetised modules bypass the need for tiny disposable batteries, an ongoing frustration for people with reduced vision and dexterity.

To distinguish Facett from traditional hearing aids, Heiss drew inspiration from the mineralogy collection at Museums Victoria in Melbourne. Facett’s crystalline form seeks to shift the hearing aid away from an association with infirmity and old age, enabling a shift from ‘disability’ to ‘desirability’.

City of Melbourne

Company Profile:

The City of Melbourne’s Grey to Green project is a sustainable example of repurposing the city to meet rapid population growth by converting more than 80 hectares of underutilised asphalt and infrastructure into public open space, over a 30-year period. By identifying and reconfiguring existing Council-owned infrastructure into better public space, the City has been able to add extra greening, activity, vibrancy and social transaction to our public realm without having to spend hundreds of millions of dollars on central city land acquisitions. Grey to Green also enables more soft surfaces in the city, which can act as a catchment for stormwater and allow for additional greening, resulting in increased biodiversity and a reduction in the urban heat island effect. This design-led program ensured that new spaces blended with the existing surrounds, thereby reinforcing Melbourne’s local character. The great success of Grey to Green is that it can take place on a small or large scale and it involves local communities in making our cities better places for people.

What was once closed is a series of neckpieces exploring our interactions and encounters with jewellery. The objects begin closed and folded in, where their function is not apparent. Only when the objects unfurl are they understandable as jewellery. These works aim to make visible the shift between these two moments, drawing particular attention to the transformation and reveal. The hinging and pivoting mechanisms allude to the movements, their forms and details mimicking machinery of a much larger scale.

Established in 1994, Kerstin Thompson Architects (KTA) works across architecture, interiors, landscape and urban design. KTA’s vision for the Visitor Centre at the Royal Botanic Garden, Cranbourne, expresses three themes: journey, threshold and prism. More than a building, the Visitor Centre was envisaged as an inviting sequence of interiors and intimate gardens that form an intriguing journey; a threshold.

In this project, the role of architecture is to frame the landscape – to be a backdrop to and an extension of the Australian Garden. The spaces form prisms, which provide a way of apprehending the diversity and richness of the Australian landscape. The palette of materials consolidates this vision. Weathered timber boards not only allow the buildings to recede but they also provide a canvas against which to see the changing light, shapes and colours of the plants unique to Australia.

Tel: 61 (3) 9428 6352

Company Profile:

Founded in 2002 by Hugo Davidson and Mal McKechnie, Knog was a spin-off from Davidson and McKechnie’s design consultancy, Catalyst. Its first design was Frog, an innovative silicone light, which then evolved into the Frog Strobe, a simple batterypowered blinky. Since then, Knog has designed many silicone products including bike lights, bags and locks that are much-loved contributions to the bike parts and accessories market. The core of Knog’s design work is the bike light. Now, Knog has a range to cover mountain-biking, road cycling and urban commuting, including the hyper-affordable and wearable Plus light, the contemporary design classic Oi bike bell, and the hyper-technical PWR design. The PWR range is a modular range of bike lights where the battery (or ‘PWR Bank’), lighthead and mount can all be dismantled, enabling the replacement or upgrade of components. The battery can also be used as a power bank that is compatible with many Knog products, such as a speaker, lantern and head torch, with other accessories planned.

Leah Heiss

Company Profile:

Facett is the world’s first modular userprogrammable hearing aid. It was designed by Leah Heiss for Blamey Saunders hears, an Australian company reducing barriers to hearing aid uptake through innovative design. Facett functions differently from traditional hearing aids. The device’s intuitive magnetised modules bypass the need for tiny disposable batteries, an ongoing frustration for people with reduced vision and dexterity.

To distinguish Facett from traditional hearing aids, Heiss drew inspiration from the mineralogy collection at Museums Victoria in Melbourne. Facett’s crystalline form seeks to shift the hearing aid away from an association with infirmity and old age, enabling a shift from ‘disability’ to ‘desirability’.

Linda Tegg

Company Profile:

Baracco+Wright Architects in collaboration with Linda Tegg. Australian Pavilion, 16th International Architecture Exhibition, La Biennale di Venezia. Presented by the Australian Institute of Architects
Architecture has customarily taken up land and impacted the natural environment. In response to this, Repair advocated for an approach to architecture that catalyses environmental, social or cultural repair. This approach is particularly relevant for Australian architects who work in one of the most biodiverse and ecologically sensitive landscapes in the world.
Repair incorporated three collaborative works: Grasslands Repair, a living installation of more than sixty species of grassland plants from south east Victoria that once grew on the site of Melbourne; Skylight, a life-sustaining light installation that provided the necessary light spectrum to the plants, something usually denied by the fabric of a building; and Ground, a video program featuring Australian architectural projects that engage with ideas of repair.

MagicPi

Company Profile:

Melbourne-based designer Makiko Ryujin’s Shinki series of burnt vessels draws on her Japanese heritage. The works are informed by the cultural ceremony of burning traditional Daruma dolls, a ritual she observed as a child. The ceremony is rich in symbolism and is undertaken to mark both an end and a beginning; a demarcation of time that allows new plans to be reborn. An exploration of the ways her vessels change shape as the green wood dries after turning and, then, burning, is central to Ryujin’s creative practice. Mentored by master craftsman and furniture maker Carl Lutz, Ryujin’s exquisite vessels shift perceptions of traditional woodworking techniques, inspiring a new generation of designer–makers to explore the craft.

Marcos Guzman

Company Profile:

Working with acrylic and consumer plastics, and eschewing industrial processes for a handmade approach, Melbourne-based contemporary jeweller Marcos Guzman uncovers the subtle and precious qualities of his chosen materials. He uses vivid colours and graphic line work to create a sense of nostalgia for classic patterns, while evocative titles imbue each piece with a suggested narrative.

The Yo Westbam! necklace is made of plastic straw beads threaded onto nylon, each piece containing multiple layers of straw that slot within each other to create new colours and to build tension and strength. At first, the simplicity of the work is unassuming, but close inspection reveals the precision and complexity of each necklace.

The Melbourne and Olympic Parks precinct is key to Melbourne’s global reputation for major sports and entertainment events. It is the home of the Australian Open, one of the world’s four Grand Slam tennis tournaments.
The Stage 3 Masterplan develops iconic facilities in a manner that strengthens connections within and across the broader precinct, by knitting together a complex and varied precinct that operates in multiple modes.

Understanding the complex inter-relationship between back-of-house facilities and public areas has been a major factor in developing the design. Given the precinct’s strategic position with Melbourne’s Yarra River corridor and the adjacent public parklands, the Masterplan required engagement with both city and state planning authorities.

nura

Company Profile:

nura

nura’s design ambition is to provide personalised sound to everyone, everywhere.

The nuraphone is the world’s first headphone to automatically learn and adapt to a user’s unique hearing, thus bringing people closer to the music they love. Using super-sensitive microphones, the nuraphone measures the otoacoustic emission (the sound the cochlear creates back out of the ear) to create the perfect sound profile for an individual.
nura began the challenge of designing the perfect headphone with the knowledge that we all hear differently. The resulting product is a combination of a number of world firsts: the nuraphone combines in and over ear architecture that enables clarity; it automatically personalises sound profiling; and it incorporates ear-cooling tesla valves. The result is a headphone that rethinks a design that has remained largely unchanged since its inception more than a century ago.

PCAST is a unique process that allows prosthetic limbs to be created within a day, offering particular advantages for patients in remote and developing regions where highly qualified prosthetists are either unavailable or unable to meet the intense local demand for prosthetic limbs. This situation is compounded in Vietnam where the prevalence of landmines and high rates of motor accidents have led to high demand for low cost prosthetic legs.

The prosthetic socket is the most vital component in an artificial leg. The PCAST system works by using a portable unit that can create a customised socket for prosthetic legs without the need for specialist technicians. In Vietnam, a prosthesis costs US$130 and takes eight hours to make; PCAST costs US$100 and takes about four hours to complete. More than 400 patients have already benefitted from this technology.

Transporting audiences visually and aurally to Antarctica, Floe 2018 draws on the atmospheric effects of the Antarctic landscape to create a speculative architectural installation designed in response to a sound work by Philip Samartzis. The architecture is a part of a larger body of work developed by Roland Snooks, director of the RMIT Architectural Robotics Lab, that explores the architectural implications of algorithmic design through robotic 3D fabrication. The translucent skin of the tower comprises seventy unique overlapping semi-clear polymer panels printed by robot.

The sound work was recorded by Samartzis in Antarctica. By recording and representing the many sounds of Antarctica’s constantly shifting ice shelves, glaciers, icebergs and sea ice, Samartzis challenges the perception of Antarctica as an unchanging landscape, suspended in time and place.

Lisa Roet

Tel: 61 (4) 2709 0884

Company Profile:

For over three decades, just what it is to be human has been the central driving force behind Lisa Roet’s art practice She is committed to exploring environmental issues and genetic discoveries through an interdisciplinary approach to her practice.Roet has worked with the arts, design and science communities worldwide including collaborating with zoos, environmental groups and museum archives to develop her art using a wide range of mediums and materials.

Her work has focussed on some of the worlds environmental hotspots, including Borneo and most recently China, including several large public project launched in Beijing for Earth Hour 2018. Lisa responds to the image of the ape and monkey as humans closest animal relative and as a mirror and social commentary to remind us of the necessity to re evaluate our (humanities) po- sition within this increasingly urbanised and global world. The motif of the finger or thumb has appeared in her work throughout her career in sculpture and drawing. For Roet the Finger and thumb represent communication, science and an adaptation which makes Human are who we are today. Through observation Roet has witnessed many apes and monkeys communicate through touch and facial expression rather than vocalisations. During her residencies in the 1990s at the cutting edge Language research centre at Georgia Stage university, Roet was assigned a Chim- panzee whom had learnt 300 works and communicated these words through American Sign Lan- guage and a lexigram keyboard system to “talk” with. She found that through the use of the fin- ger and thumb that she was able to communicate with this Chimpanzee. From a scientific per- spective ,the opposable thumb and forefinger are also present in most apes and monkeys along with humans. It is only in Humans where the dexterity of thumb and forefinger meeting possibly defines the “Human” of today as apposed to all other primates.

Roet believes that creative culture has the ability to present pertinent and powerful messages in our communities a philosophy she represents through her art. While sculpture forms the basis of her practice ,public art is a new domain in which Roet has been exploring ideas developed through her studio practice and Museum/gallery presentations. With two large public art projects successfully completed in Beijing, Roet will be working in Holland and in Indonesia over the next year on several new public art projects.

Preston Zly shoes are painstakingly \ handmade from leather, wood and the best quality synthetic materials where appropriate - these exciting modern classics are not made to fast disposable fashion trends, but will stand the test of time both stylistically and materially. Preston Zly creates contemporary shoe design using old world craftsmanship, resulting in shoes that embody luxury. Both Johanna & Petr are visionary artisans who are dedicated to the art of shoemaking in the 21st century.
